Pro-Tex™ Silt Curtains

Pro-Tex™ Floating Silt Curtains - also known as silt nets or turbidity curtains - are designed to contain and control the dispersion of suspended solids in the water column during piling, dredging, bank re-profiling, quarrying or marine construction.

Silt curtains are designed to be flexible floating, yet vertical, installations which extend downward from the water surface to a specified water depth, usually tight to the bed; the curtain is maintained in a vertical position by closed cell floats at the top and a ballast chain along the bottom for anchorage. We have designed many unique features into our curtains to increase and improve their application and effectiveness.
